Even until today, when all the subscription beauty box crazy are dying down.. I’m still pretty much into beauty sampling.. So glad I chance upon Preloot on Instagram!
Preloot works pretty much the same. Try before buying..
Ya.. Different signboard but still selling the same soup? .. Second thought, not really..
The difference? They focus on LOCAL handmade beauty products..SUPPORT LOCAL!!
I shall leave it to you to check out more on Preloots story HERE.
Without further ado… Let’s check out my first loot bag from Preloot!!
Yes… No monthly subscription.. Free samples.. What you need to pay is the shipping fee only. That’s S$8.99 for 5 samples.
Sounds expensive as compared to competitors? But .. they bring in local handmade products!! That’s the price I’m willing to pay! On the other hand, choose bigger items la! Max out the amount you pay! LOL
Here’s my bag, literally a (paper) bag! Not sure if they had mail this or delivered it personally because I don’t see my address anywhere on the bag. What you see is what I see too~
So how did I stretch my dollar???
I redeemed a FULL SIZE Rachel K CC Renew cream and pressed powder…
If you didn’t know, which I doubt so, Rachel K is a Singaporean and was crowned Miss Universe Singapore in 2009!! Rachel K debuted her CC cream in 2010 and was an instant hit!
Which women doesn’t want to have beautiful skin!? Knowing that Rachel K’s product main targets combination skin, I’m pretty sure I wanna get my hands on this!! But first I need to get the right shade first!! Medium is lil dark for me! Guess I will redeem again for another tone!
After taking care of face, I think it’s good to take care of our body too! I redeemed these handmade herbal soap from Bodhi for my handsome fiance! Guys love soap bar isn’t it??
Actually I didn’t realize I have a Bodhi product sitting at home until that day I was dazing in my study room~ A Bodhi Reed Diffuser! (I’ll show u next time!)
Eucalyptus – 100g
Banish fatigue and stress with this 100% natural soap. Contains Eucalyptus essential oil, which helps in easing skin irritation and insect bites and relieves muscle pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Anti-bacterial, refreshing and cooling soap.
Lanna Spa – 100g
100% natural. Lanna Spa soap contains various essential oils – Lavender, Tea Tree, Lemongrass and Orange. These oils purify, calm, and stimulate new skin cells growth.
The last product in my shopping cart is this body scrub from Basic-Theory.
And you’ve guessed it! This is a local brand too (of course)! They source the ingredient from all over the world and then carefully handcrafted in small batches, in Singapore!! 很有心right?
You must be thinking.. of sooo many flavours out there WHY COFFEE!???
Because coffee smells good mah~! Plus this is finest grade organic fair-trade Arabican coffee beans leh!! Good to perk you up while diminishing those stubborn skin imperfections.
I must say… when I opened up the packed, I nearly fainted. The coffee fragrance was a lil too bitter. Perhaps I’m not a true coffee lover.
But that aside, the scrub was good. It was a really good scrub and I enjoyed the whole scrubbing process.. A 40g pack from Preloot is definitely good for 2-3 wash!
Ehem.. but personal preference, I would like to use the scrub before my shower gel, else my skin is full of coffee stain.. eee.. Glad that I’m all smooth and rejuvenated after a evening scrub!
I’m glad there’s a platform whereby we can get to know more local brands and try before using!! Who says 新加坡没好货！？
